Death Of Love

In Death Of Love, a bitter, self-proclaimed nice guy gains the ability to see the Cupidae, who are responsible for love in the world. Who he then ends up in bloody and, hopefully, hilarious war with.

Family Tree

Bestselling, award-winning Jeff Lemire (Royal City, Descender, Sweet Tooth) and Phil Hester (Shipwreck, Green Arrow) come together for Family Tree.

When an eight-year-old girl literally begins to transform into a tree, her single Mom, troubled brother, and possibly insane Grandfather embark on a bizarre and heart-wrenching odyssey across the back roads of America,

Recap: 'Outlander' - It wouldn't be 'The Gathering' without family drama

Recap: 'Outlander' - It wouldn't be 'The Gathering' without family drama
At the end of the last episode, Claire’s plan to secure her freedom by being the best prisoner ever blew up in her face spectacularly. Turns out when you act like you want to hang out with your captors, they are less likely to let you leave. Funny that. But undeterred, Claire hatched a plan. A plan based on a folk song. A folk song that she disregarded pertinent information from (I blame the Rhenish). So, yeah. This should go well. Can Claire escape “The Gathering”? ******************* As the credits fade, scaffolding appears. No, not quite. It’s men with guns in tree stands. Out in the open. Where any snipers in the opposing tree line could pick them off like fish in a barrel. Good job, guys. These astounding strategists are guarding Clan MacKenzie from all sorts of enemies…like giggling children. Calm down Trigger Jim, unless you really

Film Review: Thor: The Dark World

  • LRM Online
Marvel’s version of the God of Thunder is back in theaters. “Thor: The Dark World” picks up shortly after the events of 2012′s blockbuster, “The Avengers,” which ended with the hammer-wielding hero bringing his devious brother, Loki, to the Asgardian authorities for his crimes committed against earth. The opening segments of the film move quite briskly to establish several things- With Odin explaining, via narration, the history of the film’s antagonist, seeing Loki get incarcerated after confronting his adoptive parents, showing that Thor has grown into his role as the responsible future king of Asgard, and establishing a dynamic where the story zips back-and-forth between mystical realms and earth. It becomes quite clear early on that, more so than any of the other standalone Marvel films, this one will be more of an ensemble piece. Thor’s supporting cast is rather enormous at this point, with bits of

O California, Where Art Thou: Why Is the Tax Incentives Program Driving Away Indie Film?

O California, Where Art Thou: Why Is the Tax Incentives Program Driving Away Indie Film?
J. Todd Harris is a film producer living in Los Angeles. His credits include “Bottle Shock,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “The Family Tree” and “Miss Nobody” — all shot in California. I just wrapped an independent movie here in Los Angeles, a musical called “Lucky Stiff” from “Jeffrey” director Christopher Ashley. It’s a pretty expensive movie by indie standards, but the experience was a joy because everything we needed was here, with the best film professionals in the world available and eager to work. Eager? Nay, thankful. If there was one overriding sentiment expressed during our just-over-five-week shoot, it was how grateful everyone on the crew was to have a movie shooting at home in Los Angeles. Like so many productions these days, it would have been incredibly easy for us not to. There were many reasons we chose Los Angeles, despite the fact that other states have a more accessible and.

Britt Robertson Goes Chasing 'White Rabbit'

A hookah-smoking caterpillar has given Britt Robertson the call to join an indie drama.

The "Scream 4" beauty is set to feed her head as she'll play with the men on the chessboard of "White Rabbit," according to Deadline.

"White Rabbit" centers on a bullied high school teen (Nick Krause of "The Descendants") whose nightmares begin to affect his waking life. Robertson will be playing his girlfriend, with Sam Trammell of "True Blood" set to play his father.

Britt Robertson recently wrapped her recurring role as Cassie Blake on the now-canceled CW drama, "The Secret Circle." She recently scowled her way through the dysfunctional family drama, "The Family Tree," and screamed with the best of them as Marnie Cooper in Wes Craven's "Scream 4."

Robertson also recently earned a lot of buzz for her turn in the high school romance, "The First Time," which made a splash at Sundance earlier this year.

The development of Ray Bradbury - science fiction legend

The science fiction world suffered a great loss with the death of the legendary Ray Bradbury, who departed this universe on June 5th 2012 at the age of 91. An incredible influence on the genre during the forties and fifties, Bradbury re-defined 20th Century American fiction with a prolific output that tackled a wide variety of subjects. But it was science fiction that he will be best remembered for. Most of his short stories and novels depicted a bleak utopian future ruled by media technology. This was made all the more unique by the fact that Bradbury never drove a car. His most famous works are The Illustrated Man, Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles.

The family tree itself had one interesting skeleton in the cupboard. Bradbury’s ancestor was Mary Bradbury, who was tried as a witch during the infamous Salem Witch Trials of 1692. She was married to Massachusetts born Captain Thomas Bradbury.

96 Minutes – The Review

This review originally ran last November when 96 Minutes played at The St. Louis International Film Festival

Racism is never an easy topic to tackle in any medium, so when you add class warfare and the peer pressure of gang culture to the story, it triples the difficulty of pulling off a believable and sincere film. Against the odds, this is precisely what first time writer and director Aimee Lagos has accomplished with 96 Minutes. Inspired by true events, 96 Minutes is a story of four young lives, each of them on separate paths which violently collide.

Brittany Snow (The Vicious Kind) plays Carley, an upper-middle class hard-working white college student studying law. Evan Ross (The Family Tree) plays Dre, a young black man from a gritty part of town whose determined not to fall into the gangster life, despite retaining his friendship with Kevin, played by Jonathan Michael Trautmann, a 16-year old

Ajith Kumar Brings Back The Don In Billa 2: The Beginning Trailer

Chakri Toleti's upcoming Billa 2: The Beginning is among the most anticipated Tamil language films of 2012. The film is a sequel to 2007's Billa, starring Ajith Kumar, who returns in the titular role for the new film. Billa was a remake with aspects of both Shah Rukh Khan's 2006 Don, and 1980's Billa, starrring Rajnikanth, itself a remake of 1978 Hindi film Don starring Amitabh Bachchan. The family tree of Don remakes and sequels is getting crazier every year. 2007's Billa was a massive success, and not just commercially. While the 2006 Hindi version was among the finest Bollywood films of the 2000's, the Tamil version was also one of the slickest in that industry, and remains a high water mark for action in...

New Dark Shadows Photos Feature Depp, Haley, and Pfieffer

Johnny Depp, Jackie Earle Haley, and Michelle Pfieffer step back into the 70’s in the latest images from Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows.

While a trailer still eludes us, Dark Shadows continues to tease with photographic peeks at the film. The photos are nice, but I’m really hoping a trailer will be popping up soon.

In the latest images, Depp’s Barnabas Collins and Haley’s Willie Loomis explore a Gothic setting while Pfieffer strikes a pose as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the “reclusive matriarch of the Collins family. The family tree has fallen in serious disrepair since Barnabas was cursed 200 years ago but even vampirism seems to pale when you consider that Elizabeth hasn’t left the mansion since her husband disappeared ten years ago. Seriously, this is one messed up family.

Dark Shadows, which also stars Chloe Moretz, Gulliver McGrath, Bella Heathcote, Ray Shirley, Jonny Lee Miller, and Helena Bonham Carter,

New Release: The Family Tree DVD and Blu-ray

Release Date: Nov. 22, 2011

Price: DVD $24.98, Blu-ray $29.98

Studio: Entertainment One

A dysfunction quartet takes a breather in The Family Tree.

A bizarre accident leaves a desperate housewife with a case of amnesia and a family that turns their dysfunctional setting up to “11″ in the 2011 independent comedy film The Family Tree.

The housewife who sets the story into motion is Serenity, Ohio’s Bunny Burnett (Hope Davis, TV’s Mildred Pierce), and her family includes husband Jack (Dermot Mulroney, Jolene) and their twin 17-year-olds Eric (Max Theriot, Chloe) and Kelly (Britt Robertson, Scream 4). One wouldn’t think that Bunny’s amnesiac condition couldn’t make things any better — the family’s “problems” include a stew of past relationships, kids with guns, suicidal teachers, a very zealous religious club, misinterpreted advances, corporate down-sizing and one very tricky mother-in-law — but, somehow, her loss of memory does wonders for everyone!

The first film directed by Vivi Friedman,

The Ru? Fan Appreciation Instant DVD Collection Giveaway

First off, I have to tell you that this page may load slow. We're making an awful lot of calls to the Amazon Api here, and that's bound to monkey with things. If you have no idea what that means... it's shiny. Please note also that, for the same reason, you may find, depending on traffic, that not all of the Amazon details will load properly. I apologize for that, it's just the nature of the beast, and the fact that the Api wasn't really meant for such things. If you refresh, it will probably fix.

You may have heard me mention this giveaway quite a while ago, and it's taken me a long time to figure out what sort of format to put things in, and I kept added things. Eventually it became too much to really give any kind of run down on the items, so I decided
